Punk legends The Damned return this spring with the 12th studio album in the band’s 46-year history, a 12-song collection called Darkadelic that is preceded by the first single and opening track “The Invisible Man,” which you can hear below via its Martin Gooch-directed music video.
The Thomas Mitchener-produced Darkadelic will be released via earMUSIC on April 28 on CD, vinyl and digital formats, and is available for pre-order. It’s the band’s first album since 2018’s Evil Spirits.
Though the Damned performed a short run of concerts last year with the original lineup of Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Brian James and Rat Scabies, they’re not all on the album. The band’s current lineup includes Vanian, Sensible, Paul Gray, Monty Oxymoron and new drummer William Granville-Taylor.
The band is set to head out on tour in the U.K. and Europe through March and April.
